The Author & Auteur Collection is a box set I designed of movies packaged along with the books they are based on. They include three Movie/Book pairs, a box and two promotional posters.

The goal of this project was to create a collectible package that makes a statement about the relationship between film and literature, and examines the way an auteur interprets the work of an author. I chose three sets of adaptations: One traditional (To Kill a MockingbirdTo Kill a Mockingbird,) one non-traditional (Heart of DarknessApocalypse Now,) and one adventurous (The Orchid ThiefAdaptation.) The cover designs were meant to communicate the deeper meanings of the books and films, while at the same time respecting the similarities and differences between the two mediums.

I designed a logo, set of three covers, box, and two promotional posters.
